Abstract

In dendroecology, sampling effort has a strong influence of both regional chronology properties and climate-tree growth relationships assessment. Recent studies evidenced that decreasing sample size leads to a weakening of the bootstrapped correlation coefficients (BCC BCC). The present analysis...

Abstract

Regional chronology and climate-growth relationships assessment are known to be sensitive to sampling effort. To disentangle the respective benefits of increasing whether the number of plots or the number of trees per plot when investigating climate-growth relationships under temperate conditions,...

Abstract

In most dendrochronological studies, climate-growth relationships are established on dominant trees to minimize non-climatic signals. However, response to environmental factors may be affected by tree-size, which begs the question of the representativeness of dominant trees on the stand level. To...

Abstract

The objectives of this article are to highlight how extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine) and how elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate the sensitivity to climate. We sampled 33 stands in France in...

Abstract

Questions: (1) How do extreme climatic events and climate variability influence radial growth of conifers (silver fir, Norway spruce, Scots pine)? (2) How do elevation and soil water capacity (SWC) modulate sensitivity to climate? Location: The sampled conifer stands are in France, in western...

Abstract

Height and radial growth trends were analysed in Corsican pine (Pinus nigra ssp. laricio var. Corsicana) plantations in western France for the period 1950-1997. Differences in height growth were tested by comparing the site index of stands established before and after 1950 and the height growth...

Abstract

Dendrochronological studies of 128 Corsican pine (Pinus nigra) trees - mean age 73 years old - grown in Pays de la Loire, France, indicated that climatic factors explained between 50 and 60% of variation in growth ring width. Signal years since 1928 were identified, in which annual ring width was...

Abstract

A total of 1 808 Corsican pine (Pinus nigra subsp. laricio var. corsicana) were sampled in western France (Pays-de-la Loire region). Changing mean increment rates for each tree, and the relationship between stem radial growth and present crown conditions were studied. For each ring, earlywood and...
